Time and time again, I jump in without thinking and that's exactly what I did when I saw the Beacon Hill house. I never seem to learn and you'd think at my age I would certainly know better! Well I downloaded the schematics for the house . . . low and behold this gal was in shock!! There are literally hundreds of pieces that need to be put together, it will take hubby and I years to finish it . . . so don't hold your breath on getting updates on this house any day soon.
Anyway, this was not going to stop me from having a 1:12 scale dollhouse that I could almost immediately decorate, and without the tedious job of becoming a construction worker. So I bought this one, which measures 75cm (29.5") high x 71cm (28") wide x 46cm (18") deep.
Yes, it's a kiddies dollhouse, but it's not going to stay looking like this. I have decided that I'd like to paint the outside (colours yet to be decided) and maybe do something different with the roof, maybe with corrugated metal or terracotta tiles like they do in Australia.
The interior decoration that comes with the kit is more suited for a child, so I certainly shan't be using that either. I plan on doing an elegant black and white interior, with just a hint of coloured accents, much like you can see here in this updated Australian Federation house.
So there you have it my lovelies, until next time, be kind to yourselves. 😘
